Hi,

I am just wondering if it is possible to dock controls recursively (well, I only need two levels)? Basically, top-level controls should be placed as tabs; inside each tab, there should be a regular RadSplitContainer. Controls should be draggable between top-level containers; also, it should be possible to create a new top-level group (tab) by dragging a control.

This code comes very close to what I have in mind but it looks like you don't support that scenario yet (it is easy to crash this app and also layout serialization doesn't work):

Thanks!

Hi Andrew,

I am sorry, but this scenario is not supported indeed. We have logged it as a feature request in our PITS. You can view it here. However, you can try putting this layout in a TabControl. It should work as expected.

Hope this helps.

All the best,

Konstantina,

Thanks for the answer! I hope this feature will get implemented in the future, it seems like many people are interested in it.

TabControl lacks many feature (for instance, you can't position top-level controls) and is not integrated with the docking (we want to be able to create top-level tabs by just dragging controls there), so it's not a viable option for us.

Regards,
Andrew
